I am so saddened by the dissolution of Colleen & Mark’s marriage. Colleen has been through so much with her cancer ordeal and now this horrible shock. I love you Colleen… you are one brave lady and God be with you through the days ahead. I love ATWT and I am going to miss it terribly when it goes off the air. You are the most beautiful actress I have ever seen on any soap. I pray all good things for you. Cheryl

I have enjoyed watching Colleen on ATWT for years. She is beautiful. I remember when Mark was on the show, I could tell when they fell in love then married. I am so sad to hear this news about the trouble. I pray that they can possibly work through, and if not hope that they have peace and happiness.

“Long-running”?? Do you even know who the mother of Mark’s children is? It isn’t Colleen. This is not a “long-running” person.

They were married for 23 years and have two children together and raised their other four children from previous marriages as a famiy. Get your facts straight. He cheated on her and she kicked him to the curb, as he deserves!

I miss ATWT verry much and I personally think that Collen Zenk Pinter was best! And I hope that she can get on another soap opera or t.v show!

I am shocked and saddened about the news of your break up. I have met both of you several times and never thought that I would read about the dissolution of your marriage. You are fortunate to have caught and treated your oral cancer. You are a very strong woman.

Don’t feel sorry for Colleen. She will step on you to get to the top. Beware, she has ALMOST everyone fooled. Adulter and wicked person. Don’t be fooled. She is not a victim, just another role she has assumed.

It really is not fair we are only hearing her side. Has he said anything about what happened?

There are 2 people in a relationship & i’m sure he is not all at fault.At least he is being a gentelman & not talking about it.Good luck to you Mr. Pinter.

As a BIG fan of theirs, I am shocked and saddened by their decision to end their marriage. I always thought that they had such a strong and happy marriage. With relationships these days, YA’ just never know!!!

Jon Lindstrom and Cady McClain Announce They Have Ended Their Marriage

After much speculation, General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin) and Cady McClain (ex-Jennifer, DAYS, ex-Rosanna, ATWT, ex-Dixie, AMC et al) have officially confirmed and announced they have gone their separate ways and have ended their marriage.

For months on social media, it was clear that the two were seemingly apart, not appearing pictured in any of each others posts.

Now, on a mutually shared Instagram post, Jon and Cady made an official statement on the status of their relationship, beginning with “Cady and Jon here. We are taking this opportunity to make a short statement about our relationship status. It may be obvious to some based on our posts that we’ve taken some time apart. After serious consideration we have decided that our goals have been taking us in different directions and to end our marriage.”

Richard Roundtree, ‘Generations’, ‘ATWT” and ‘Shaft’ Star, Dead at 81

Motion picture and television leading man, Richard Roundtree, has passed away at the age of 81. The actor, best known for his role in the iconic film Shaft, and its sequels, died from complications from pancreatic cancer on October 24th in his home in Los Angeles.

In a statement, Roundtree’s manager, Patrick McMinn shared, “Richard’s work and career served as a turning point for African American leading men in film. The impact he had on the industry cannot be overstated.”

During his extensive credits and career, Roundtree made two stops to two daytime soap operas. In 1990 till 1991, Roundtree played Dr. Daniel Ruebens on the defunct NBC soap opera Generations. He later appeared on As the World Turns from 2002-2003, taking on the role of Oliver Travers, the father to T. Marshall Travers played by Lamman Rucker.

Roundtree’s leading lady on Generations, Jonelle Allen took to her Facebook upon learning the news of the death of her former castmate and friend, expressing: “My Leading Man on Generations. I Am Very Sad. My Condolences To Your Family. Dearest Richard Roundtree.”

In a subsequent post, Allen shared a photo of their Generations’ characters, Daniel and Doreen about to lip-lock. Jonelle stated, “In the scene with him I kept thinking: ‘Shaft is about to kiss ME!!!’ Thank You.”

On Generations, Roundtree’s character of Daniel Reubens was a brilliant doctor, who was accused of killing someone by causing an explosion at a lab in 1974. He and his daughter, Maya, then went “underground” for the next 15 years. Maya was played by Viveca A. Fox.
